Terms of use of MyAccount service

EDF Energy's My Account and/or EDF Energy's Mobile App provide you with an interactive service which is designed to enable you to access and manage your account(s) with us (each being called a "Service").

In these Terms and Conditions of Use (the "Terms") "you" are the customer who has registered for the Services (also a "User") and "we" are EDF Energy Customers plc trading as EDF Energy.

These Terms (as amended from time to time) govern your use of the Services and are therefore binding on you. Please therefore download and/or print a copy of them and retain them for your records. Your use of the Service and the website www.edfenergy.com (the "Website") is also subject to our Privacy Policy and the Website Terms and Conditions which are available to view via the relevant links on the Website. The Terms are always in addition to those governing the actual energy account(s) that you are using the Services to access and manage online.

We reserve the right to change these Terms and modify or withdraw either of the Services at any time. However, we will endeavour to provide you with advance notice before making any material change.

1. Access

1.1. We will try to ensure that the Services are available 24 hours a day. However, we will not be liable if, for any reason, the Services are unavailable at any time or for any period. 

1.2. Only existing customers of EDF Energy who are able to form legally binding contracts may register to become users of the Services. If you are registering on behalf of a business entity you represent that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms and Conditions.

To register as a User please confirm that you have read and understood these Terms and Conditions by ticking the checkbox  during the registration process and clicking on the "Submit" button.

Once the registration process is complete an online identity will be created for you that will enable you to manage your energy account(s) with EDF Energy online using the Services.

You will subsequently receive an email from us to the email address that you have provided to us which will contain a link which you should click on to verify the email address that you have provided. If you do not verify your email address within 24 hours we will send you a reminder email. If you do not verify your email address within 48 hours, your registration will be deleted from our records and you will need to register again should you still wish to benefit from the Service.

1.3. Each time you log on to use the Services you will need to supply your user name and the password provided when you registered as a User. Once you have logged on we will assume that we are dealing with you and that you have agreed to us disclosing information or acting on your instructions without obtaining further confirmation from you. You are responsible for ensuring that your instructions are correct.

1.4. From time to time we may choose to also call you to confirm instructions. Please therefore remember to update us immediately should your contact details change. You can view and amend these by going to our "Contact details" page or by contacting our Customer Services team by telephone on 0800 096 2255 (Small Business (SME) General Enquiries) or 0800 096 9000 (Residential General Enquiries).

1.5. For your protection we will block your account if you enter your log on information incorrectly three times. If we block your account you will need to contact Customer Services on 0800 096 2255 (Small Business (SME) General Enquiries) or 0800 096 9000 (Residential General Enquiries).

1.6. Responsibility for the security of any passwords issued rests with you and you are responsible for all actions taken with your user name and password. Please ensure that you do not disclose your password to anyone, even our customer service advisers. If you need to change your password, you may access MyAccount and select the "Change password" hyperlink shown in the top right-hand corner of the homepage.
